Colorado Open Records Act

What is the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA)?

In the spirit of open government, the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA), §24-72-201, C.R.S., was enacted in 1969 and signed into law by Governor John A. Love. CORA ensures that citizens have the right to ask to inspect public documents retained by local and state government agencies. Unless specifically outlined in Colorado statute, all documents are open to the public and can be requested at any time. If any document falls under the outlined exemptions requiring closure, the specific statute requiring closure will be given to the requestor.

Each city, town, county, and state agency maintain their own set of records. To file a public information request, contact the agency most likely to have the records that you wish. CORA requires that if the information is availble it must be released within three (3) business days.
